Peer-reviewed studies reject these claims, too.“Are US floods increasing? The answer is still ‘No,’” says a new scientific paper by Roger Pielke, Jr. The evidence demonstrates that “flooding has not increased in U.S. over records of 85 to 127 years. This adds to a pile of research that shows similar results around the world,” Pielke said. It is also worth noting that “the world’s ten deadliest floods all occurred before 1976.” In other words “all of the world’s deadliest floods occurred with CO2 well below 350 PPM.”

In addition, a recent study by the U.S. government found no evidence that climate change caused more severe flooding during last century. In fact, the U.S. Geological Survey found that in some regions “floods become less severe as greenhouse gas emissions increased.” Moreover, at this time,“we do not see a clear pattern that enables us to understand how climate change will alter flood conditions in the future,” USGS scientist Robert Hirsch explained."

No. Major hurricanes are now less frequent. Not a single decade during past 50 years witnessed an above-average number of major hurricanes. In fact, for the United States, during the past four decades,“the fewest number of major hurricanes struck during any 40-year period since at least the 1800s.” The worst decade for major (category 3, 4 and 5) hurricanes was 1940s, according to the website Real Science, which analyzed National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration data. In 2011, a new study found that “overall global tropical cyclone activity has decreased to historically low levels during the past five years.”

Scientists were also loud and clear in rejecting the a climate change link to the big super storm Sandy that hit the East Coast in October 2012. Hurricane expert Prof. Roger Pielke Jr. explained:“Sandy was terrible, but we’re currently in a relative hurricane ‘drought.’” He added:“Connecting energy policy and disasters makes little scientific sense.”

No. In fact, big tornadoes have seen a drop in frequency since the 1950s.“There has been a downward trend in strong (F3) to violent (F5) tornadoes in U.S. since 1950s.” In fact,“warming causes fewer strong tornadoes, not more,” climatologist Dr. Roy Spencer explained.

Other prominent scientists also reject global warming links to tornadoes. There is “no scientific consensus or connection between global warming and tornadic activity,” emphasized Greg Carbin, tornado warning coordination meteorologist at NOAA’s Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma.“NOAA statistics show that the last 60 years have seen a dramatic increase in the reporting of weak tornadoes, but no change in the number of severe to violent ones,” Corbin commented."

"Sea levels have been rising since the last ice age ended 10,000 years ago. There is currently no acceleration in sea level rise. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says sea level is rising very slowly, and a recent peer-reviewed study found that sea level rise has decelerated over past ten years. Another recent study concluded that sea level is controlled by natural variability, not human causes."

DEBUNKED!!
"

Penn State professor and UN IPCC modeler Michael Mann did publish a hockey stick-shaped graph that purportedly showed an unprecedented sudden increase in average global temperatures, following ten centuries of supposedly stable climate. However, Dr. Mann was at the center of the Climategate scandal. His graph and the data and methodology behind it have been scrutinized and debunked in peer-reviewed studies by numerous climate scientists, statisticians and other experts.

The latest research clearly reveals that the Medieval Warm Period (also called the Medieval Climate Optimum) has been verified and was in fact global, not just confined to the Northern Hemisphere. The Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change reported in 2009 that “the Medieval Warm Period was:(1) global in extent,(2) at least as warm as, but likely even warmer than, the Current Warm Period, and (3) of a duration significantly longer than that of the Current Warm Period to date.”

The Science and Public Policy Institute reported in May 2009:“More than 700 scientists from 400 institutions in 40 countries have contributed peer-reviewed papers providing evidence that the Medieval Warm Period (MWP) was real, global, and warmer than the present. And the numbers grow larger daily.”

"Many in the media repeatedly cite the various Climategate investigations as an “exoneration” of the UN global warming scientists. But a closer look reveals that the investigations were nothing more than the global warming industry pretending to investigate itself, and of course pretending to find no wrongdoing.

Penn State’s investigation of Michael Mann is a prime example of what a mockery the process became. Clive Crook of the Atlantic Monthly summed it up this way:“The Penn State inquiry exonerating Michael Mann would be difficult to parody. Three of four allegations were dismissed out of hand at the outset.”

And man thinks they can control the weather-HA!


"Despite all the evidence and studies presented in this paper, many people continue to say that Congress and the United Nations need to take immediate action to prevent more extreme weather, rising sea levels and planetary “overheating.” The reality is that politicians who say government “can do something about” droughts, floods, sea levels, hurricanes and tornadoes are practicing the equivalent of medieval witchcraft.

Laws, treaties and regulations – whether from the United Nations, U.S. Congress or Environmental Protection Agency, cannot control the weather. CO2 does not control global temperatures, and current global temperatures are well within natural variability, as demonstrated by surface and satellite data and extensive historic records. Scientific studies and data also show that droughts, floods and wildfires and extreme weather are not unusual, unprecedented or related to CO2 emissions or climate change."

Of course you realize that the lock-step walking progressives will never believe any of it. They would rather remain useful idiots to further the progressive goal of cap and trade to continue to allow the few to seize wealth. They are just too unwilling to look at the big picture and see that they are being played.

The climate bill that died in the Democrat Senate was a scientifically meaningless bill that Obama’s own EPA admitted would not impact global CO2 levels – let alone global temperatures.

The climate bill would only have raised the cost of energy for American families and businesses, while doing nothing for the climate. A major Bloomberg News report revealed that U.S. oil companies would likely cope with the climate legislation by “closing fuel plants, cutting capital spending and increasing imports.” Bloomberg also reported that “one in six U.S. refineries probably would close by 2020,” and this could “add 77 cents a gallon to the price of gasoline.”EPA’s unilateral “carbon dioxide endangerment” regulations would have much the same effect."

Every bit of your information came from this webpage:

Yet another privately undisclosed funded groups paid to "create a controversy". Just who do you think is paying it millions of dollars to keep putting out this stuff?

...Even the global warming activists at RealClimate.org acknowledged this in a September 20, 2008 article, where they said “The actual temperature rise is an emergent property resulting from interactions among hundreds of factors.” CO2 is not the tail that wags the dog."
Actually, those "global warming activists" had a lot more to say in that article, mainly that it's a complex issue, but for some reason you're hungup on CO2, strawman perhaps.

Simple Question, Simple Answer… Not
http://www.realclimate.org/index.php/archives...
...Physics is rich in phenomena that are simple in appearance but cannot be calculated in simple terms. Global warming is like that. People may yearn for a short, clear way to predict how much warming we are likely to face. Alas, no such simple calculation exists. The actual temperature rise is an emergent property resulting from interactions among hundreds of factors. People who refuse to acknowledge that complexity should not be surprised when their demands for an easy calculation go unanswered.

You are correct. They forget they are nothing but a carbon based organism that emits co2 like the rest of us and will be taxed on being alive.

And you are correct, the BS will get deep cause they prove differently. They can use biased sources and DEBUNKED scientists.
